If you’re an avid player or a beginner (especially if you’ve picked up the Beginner Box) this set of four miniatures, each representing a core class (Cleric, Wizard, Fighter, and Rogue), can come in mighty handy as a distinct way to distinguish your character on the map. Each character has been carefully painted and crafted so that they are easily recognizable. Be our hero and pick up a copy of the Beginner Box Heroes.
Moving from tiny to giant, if you always thought your copy of Cthulhu Dice was fun but not quite big enough, Steve Jackson has a solution for you. Springing from the Giant Foam Cthulhu Dice demos displayed at conventions, you too can have your own 4″ wide, foam Cthulhu Die in one of four colors. Regardless of the size, the game plays exactly the same as its smaller counterpart, except for a new bracelet substitute for the sanity chits. Also safe to throw at fellow players without causing permanent damage!
While we’re on the whole dice topic, how about something for the hunting buff in your family? How about a Trophy Buck? Yuuup, Steve Jackson has done zombies, Cthulhu, and now hunting. Structured similarly to Zombie Dice, Trophy Buck is a set of 12 dice that players take turns rolling to see if they can nab the most deer. The dice have various symbols that indicate different amounts of deer as well as deer tracks, ultimately leading players to the decision of whether to continue hunting or stop so that you don’t scare the deer away. Plus, you get a swanky camo dice bag!
For those more interested in the storytelling sensibilities of roleplaying, the dice-less system of Nobilis releases its 3rd edition today.

Designed by Jenna Katerin Moran, any crossover fan of anime and roleplaying needs to give this a go.
The Dead Marshes may not be the most relaxing place to take a vacation, but, as far as the Lord of the Rings LCG is concerned, they’re pretty dang awesome. Yes, the newest Adventure Pack for the LotR LCG core set, Dead Marshes contains 60 new cards (that is cards 95-115 of the Shadows of Mirkwood cycle) to be incorporated into your base game.
Supplanting famous Internet sensation webcomic, Axe Cop, onto the equally popular card game, Munchkin, Steve Jackson has created Munchkin Axe Cop. Didn’t see that name coming. As you might imagine, there is lots of chopping and lots of stuff taking. Taking characters from the comic and turning them into cards, Munchkin Axe Cop allows you to play Axe Cop‘s partners, the Dinosaur Soldiers and Sockarang, along with battling infamous baddies like Giant Robot Zombie and Dr. Stinky Head. As the webcomic is based off the writings of a five year old boy, one cannot comprehend the insanity hidden in this box until they have purchased it, chopped it open with an axe, and blown it to bits with their awesomeness.
